Down Calle Serrano is the U.S. Embassy and the most important and expensive stores in Madrid. Plus tons of restaurants and cafes, a museum or two and at the end the Retiro Park. Other streets and avenues hold different delights and tucked in a block...More
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.

Salamanca, Spain is a town. Barrio de Salamanca is in the centre of Madrid, not known for cheap hotels since it is the most expensive part of town. If you are going to Madrid the area of e.g. Atocha is not far from the Barrio de Salamanca with much cheaper hotels. Cheers
